Moto X

Today is the big day for everything Moto X. The press release has come and gone and most people seem to be pretty excited about the Moto X. We’ve seen amazing customization options for AT&T customers, a Google Play Edition in the works, and a lot more. If you need another reason to like the Moto X then you’re in luck because Motorola and Google are going to give you at least one more.

According to reports, Google and Motorola are teaming up to give Moto X buyers 50GB of Google Drive space for free for 2 years. This is an excellent deal for cloud storage and an even better deal if you want to keep all of your stuff with Google. Of course, after 2 years you have to start paying for it if you want to keep the storage space, but we’re sure by then there will be more Google Drive deals to keep you going.

The promotion should be pretty easy to activate. Once you buy your Moto X, you simply log into your Google account and head into Google Drive. The app will see that you have a Moto X and give you 50GB of extra storage. Google Drive is one of the best cloud storage options out there. If you’re a storage minded person and are worried that the 16/32GB won’t be enough, this should help calm those worries.

It’s not the most exciting feature of the Moto X, but it’s still a really good one. If you pair that with the 20,000 songs you can upload to Google Play, you can carry almost all of your media on the cloud without ever touching your internal storage.

    Not only will they get 50 gigglebots of drive storage they will pay as much as they would for the S4 Or ONe that have more premium specifications. Seems they will not be selling as many of these things as they might think. Nexus 5 seems like the phone to wait for.

    • End in sight

      Totally agree. Please Sony for Nexus 5.

    This phone has been the let down of the year phones wise

    You guys are hilarious calling this device a failure ahead of launch. Yes you, the minority who actually cares about removable batteries and octa-core CPUs, are calling this device that will get half a billion of marketing and lots of colors options (will appeal to a lot of people) a failure.

    I think Google/Motorola (Googlerola?) know what they’re doing.

    I’d rather have an SD card slot.

    Copy is great. It’s presently offering 15 GB+ 5GB extra for each referral to both parties. Also, copy has no file size limit. Get your account here and get 20 GB of cloud storage-

    Help me, I’ve tons of data to store.

  • Alain Lafond

    Does this mean that this phone will die before 2 years… lol

    Why only two years? I would prefer 25gb for life time instead. Its like trapping people with showing them LOLLIPOP.. Keep sucking

    The main idea is first you store all your valuable info in that 50gb drive and then after 2yrs you pay premium if u want to maintain ur data or else del it or pay for it..
